Scottish Storytelling Centre
43-45 High Street, Edinburgh, EH1 1SR
We believe story, poetry, voice and language play are an essential key to language development, enjoyment in learning and teaching, and for delivering the Curriculum for Excellence in a way that engages and inspires young people and their teachers for life. This day aims to re-invigorate teachers to take a creative, fun approach to using storytelling, poetry, song and creative language as a medium for teaching right across the curriculum. After a welcome by Scotland’s National Poet, Liz Lochhead, join some of Scotland’s leading poets and storytellers for practical tools and tips to boost your confidence, extend your repertoire, and refresh your spirit and love of language.
A Connecting Voices Scottish Storytelling Centre and Scottish Poetry Library collaboration, designed for educators, storytellers, writers and artists working in the classroom with P1-S1.
